      Have you ever made friends with someone you have met on a forum? What I mean by this is have you ever added someone you have met on a forum to say Facebook or maybe added them to an IM you use or even met them in person?

      I myself have never met anyone as of yet I have met from a forum however I have added people I have met from forums to MSN, Skype and Facebook :)

      Oh yeah! I've made a few girl friends in forums who happens to come from the same country as mine. We enjoyed posting together in different forums and eventually increased our post count through the ideas we shared. I added them to my ym list too so we can chat even if we are not on forums.

      yes I have and because they ditched me, I removed them. They were bitches and instigated drama and rickrolled fora just for fun.

      Yeah i do that all the time.

      I don't usually add people on Facebook unless they ask, only because i don't go to Facebook often and they will wonder if i am ignoring them.

      But I do add friends from forums to Google + on a regular basis and we chat/talk.

      I've added Steam (games) to my list of online sites where i game and add friends there when i find out they game with steam. That's a fun place to hang out.

      If i had an Xbox Live account i would add forum friends (from gamer forums) there and we would game.

      Right now, i'm looking for more people to game with in Runescape but it seems to be not as popular of a game so harder to find.

      As for actually meeting anyone from a forum, i know a guy, who is a really good friend and we are thinking about meeting up at Dragon Con next year.

      Might or might not happen. He owns a forum and so do i, so we have that and sci fi in common. Might be fun meeting in real life.

      Yes. I have added some that I had met on a forum as friends in my Facebook account. It was a personal account so I can not just add someone, I make sure they also have their personal Facebook account before accepting or requesting to them.

      I've added people I know off of forums on IM programs like MSN and Skype; but I've never met anyone from a forum in real life.

      That's not to say I wouldn't, or that I'm against it, I've just never had the urge or need to meet anyone.

      Maybe then really good acquaintances. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between friends and friendly, especially online.

      Hey shortie, I'm gonna move this to the internet chat section? I guess it's more adequate? But yeah, I do view you as my friend. Some of you I met at fp, the inspiration forum, etc are all friends I'd like to meet up one day.
      And RJH, i'm disappointed, am I not your friend? XD i do certainly treat you like one.

      I've met a few good friends online :) and yes I consider them friends considering we talk daily. If we didn't chat every day and hardly knew each other then i'd consider them acquaintances. :)

      I usually add people on MSN/Skype/Facebook if they ask. I have also met a few awesome people who live around my city who also go on my forum. We usually meet up at gaming and other nerdy events, such as the Nintendo Connection Tour and Manifest.

      Yeah, I met some really close friends on a forum, some of them have met up. I was supposed to have also, but I was ill at the time and couldn't make it.

      That is a shame Pandorica, have you made any other plans to meet up again since then?

      I myself would love to meet some of the friends I have met through forums and also gaming but with most living in another country it's not always possible.
